We tend to spend a lot of time talking about how we can improve the look of our and bedrooms. But there is relatively little talk about how that other part of the family home – the garage – can be improved. That’s a shame because the garage is a large and versatile part of any house. Here is the place where you put the car when the weather is bad. Here is the place you store your tools and organise your DIY. And here is the place, if you’re lucky, you can organize BBQs in the summer. So, without further ado, let’s have a look at all the ways you can upgrade your garage and turn it into the space you want it to be.
Use Wall Mounting
Space in the garage always comes at a premium. There just never seems to be enough space to store things like bikes and tools. But wall mounting is an essential ingredient to solving this problem. are all the rage right now, and it’s not hard to understand why. Bikes take up an enormous amount of space, unless, of course, they’re hung up on the wall.
Don’t forget, you can also install shelving high up on the wall in your garage to take advantages of the vertical space available to you. There you can store some of the tools and equipment you use less often.
Install Automatic Doors
Instaling automatic doors, like those at , make your life easier. There’s no more having to get out of your car during a rainstorm to open the door. You simply roll up to your garage and it will open for you.
Turn Your Garage Into A Gym
Perhaps you’re not a person who uses your garage for storing the car or using tools. Maybe it’s just sitting there, unused and unloved.
This is a missed opportunity. If you enjoy fitness, but don’t want to pay high gym prices, why not turn your garage into a home gym? You’ll be saving money, using the space and getting fit at the same time.
Turn Your Garage Into A Reading Room
Reading rooms are becoming more popular with every passing year. Parents want their children to get the best start in life. And nothing helps them get a better than having their own reading room where they can immerse themselves in books.
Again, a lot of garages are sitting there doing nothing, waiting to be used. What about transforming your garage into a reading room by putting in bookshelves and built-in chairs? Some examples can be found at .
Keep Your Tools On Rolling Cabinets
Rolling cabinets are essentially cabinets on wheels. And they open up a whole raft of possibilities for people who have significant storage requirements.
Unlike traditional cabinets that don’t move, you can store rolling cabinets several cabinets deep. That means you can fit more in a given space. But rolling cabinets also make transforming the space in your garage far easier. If you want to use your garage for some other purpose for the day, just drag the cabinets out to open up the interior.
